Team Relay Marathon

Would you like to help raise money to buy an essential piece of equipment for a new medical centre in rural western Kenya by running a mile on the historic Roger Bannister track?

The Nasio Trust, together with Oxfordshire Athletics, is holding a relay marathon on Sunday 22 November 2015 at the Roger Bannister Running Track, Iffley Road, Oxford. It is open to all (middle distance runners, sprinters, throwers, parents, friends and coaches. The event has a UKA permit and therefore club members will have their times recorded on poweroften.

The marathon will be run by teams of 26 or 27 people with 26 runners completing one mile on this historic track. The remaining 352 yards will be run by the team’s fastest sprinter who could have already completed a mile or could be someone fresh!

Each mile will be run as a separate race with cumulative times regularly announced to create a competitive spirit.

Entry is just £25 per person and this can be raised as sponsorship or paid directly to the charity; all the money raised will go towards The Nasio Trust Medical Centre who hope to make enough money to purchase a hemoglobin analyzer that will help save lives.
